It would help if our leaders and politicians
would explain to us what position they were
planning to take on China and why so that
we could better understand what is going on.

The more information we are given the better informed
we are in making the right choices when it comes
to elections and who we want to be leading this
country. Therefore information is vital.

China has been so concerned about this boycott. Our trade minister, Morrison's glove puppet, Simon Birmingham has demanded a meeting with his Chinese counterpart. The Chinese haven't bothered replying to good old Simon.

The idea that China could in some way turn itself into a Western style 'liberal democracy' is farcical given the countries history and circumstance. On our trade relationship, China is dominant, that puts us at the disadvantage. In times of depression/recession countries like Australia that supply simple base commodities to the world, which at these times are generally in over supply, with most of our raw materials available to buyers from other sources.

Joe remember the Adani Coal Mine. I think it is reasonable to assume we have been trying to sell our exports to India, but after the ratbag Greens caused so much extra cost & delays, are you sure that India is still silly enough to want to do business with us?

Chris, the solution is to act in ones best interest, sad but true. China accounts for one third of Australia's exports, equal to the next five customers, very important to our well being. Running around acting as Americas deputy sheriff is certainly not in our best interest when dealing with China. The coronavirus as terrible pandemic as it is, there are 98 deaths in Australia, at the last reported official count 83,425 dead in America, there are a string of countries who should be jumping up and down demanding an inquiry into China's involvement in the whole bloody mess, before Australia makes that call. China is likely to take as much notice of Australia being impartial on such things, as America would be if North Korea was making the same demand on them. Funny how Britain, France, Spain, Italy etc are keeping their heads down, and not trying to play the hero, like little old Australia is.

Just understand that China believes that only China is a sovereign country.
China, the Central Kingdom, knows that all other countries are vassal states.
In dealing with China we have to start with that in mind.
Australia and other countries have to act together to gradually reeducate
the whole Chinese people that things have changed in the last 3000 years.

It will become more complicated in that both China and Islam have the
same long term goal, ie to control world's people and their countries.
China thinks that way because that is the way it is and always has been.
Islam is bringing Mohammad's message from Allah who has commanded
moslems to either kill the unbelievers or convert them to Islam.

There are signs, slight for sure, of co-operation between them and the
moslems probably believe they can convert the Chinese.
However the Chinese will run rings around the Islamists.
Just watch the Chinese lead the Arab countries especially into a disaster.
The real question is whether China will bypass Central Asia and move
into the Middle East and Africa. Somewhere in those areas there will
be a clash between them, before each try to take over Europe.
The Islamists will overplay their hand and the Chinese will just outwit them.
Something like I suggest will happen and resources will define the battleground.
